Is it possible to prevent sudden death?

I noticed that there are certain topics that keep coming up time and time again amongst runners online. Most of these issues are already answered by science, but many runners out there just don't have the time to research a topic or don't know where to look. So, I thought I'd answer a few of...

Marathon Training Part 1

There is one thing the Berlin Marathon has taught me: that against all odds I'm able to run a marathon. Something that I deemed impossible just a few years ago. Thus, I've learned that the impossible can be made possible. To the surprise of one of my doctors. She can't even believe I run half... Continue Reading →

Running Wish List

2017 was a good year with regards to running: I did 12 races, including my 3rd half marathon and my first marathon! And I ran 4 PBs: On the 4.2km, 5km, 8km and on the marathon (Yes, since that's my first and only marathon so far I'm counting Berlin as a PB). And now I've... Continue Reading →

Ugly Sweater Run Race Review

My last race of 2017: running through the biggest park in Amsterdam in a Christmas sweater and a santa hat. There are a lot of santa runs around, but I don't like the idea of getting dressed in a full santa suit, which will most likely be way to big for me, so this seemed... Continue Reading →

10 Christmas gifts for runners

What's on your Christmas list this year? To be honest, there isn't that much on mine, although that's mainly due to the fact that I simply don't have any more space for any more gear. The only thing I've been contemplating on buying is a GoPro Session or maybe a Rylo, because it would be fun to... Continue Reading →

Eindhoven Urban Trail Race Review

I don't mind a bit of rain or a bit of snow during my run, although I'm not a fan of cold weather since it gets harder for me to breathe and I get cold easily, but running during an amber weather warning.... that wasn't easy... The urban trail series is a series of 10... Continue Reading →

Marathons for slow runners

Since I'm a slow runner (or rather, I'm slow because I have to walk half the time), I need to pick my races a bit more carefully. There are two things I check before I enter a race: First, check the time limit. Second, check the results of the previous year to see if any of... Continue Reading →

Glow Run Review

For the past 12 years there has been a week long light festival in Eindhoven, the Netherlands during the month of November. And for the past 3 years they've had a fun run at the end of it. I've participated in the first edition in 2015 and now ran the third edition as well. The... Continue Reading →

Seeing a sports cardiologist

I've seen quite a few doctors in the past few years, yet I still feel like I'm not getting any answers. Why doesn't my running improve? Why is my VO2max going down? Should I train differently? Is there any sign that running is doing me more harm than good? ect. So far I only seem... Continue Reading →
